NEW signing Luke Summerfield marked his O's debut with a win on Saturday.

The 21-year-old Plymouth midfielder signed for the club on a month-long loan deal and went straight into the starting 11 for the derby duel with Millwall.

Summerfield, explained: "I'm looking forward to the opportunity here at Orient.

"Getting a few games will be good for me and I want to help the team.

"I've been in and out at Plymouth so far this season, so the chance to come here was one I had to take with both hands.

"I've spoken to a few of the lads and they had a lot of positive things to say about the club. I know they have been struggling for results a little bit, so hopefully I can help the team go on a good run this month."

O's boss Geraint Williams said: "Luke is a very good footballer. He's got experience in the Championship and played 20-odd games for them at that level last year.

"I went down to watch him and he's hungry and wants to get out there and play. He couldn't wait to come down and join us, and we're delighted to have him."

Summerfield will remain at the O's until Saturday, October 24.
